Samsung phone could be new Helio

Samsung's Drift phone could be Helio's new handset

The day isn't over yet, and already there's an update to our earlier report of new Helio handsets. Apparently one of the new phones will be called the Drift, and it looks to be a slider model similar to Helio's current Hero phone. We don't know too much about the phone's features, but word is that it'll have a Bluetooth transmitter that can sync with a PC as well as connect to A2DP-capable devices, and we expect it to continue the MySpace Mobile support that's been Helio's trademark feature. Electronista reports that the Drift is set to be released next month, but we have no idea of the exact launch date and price. We'll be sure to keep you posted.
